The Gulps will headline at Manchester’s Castle Hotel later this month, with the gig landing shortlyafter the recent release of latest single Mirror Mirror.

The Manchester gig is one of five UK dates they are playing across February with further shows in Cardiff, London, Leeds and Glasgow.

Mirror Mirror follows The Gulps’ 2022 hit Candy which earned key radio and media support.  Their latest track takes inspiration from one of literature’s most liberating minds, Jack Kerouac and dreams of a less mundane life.  As The Gulps’ lead singer Javier Sola explains, “It’s a fantasy poetry of a normal day. Influenced by Kerouac’s book, On the Road, and its carefree attitude and sense of adventure. Trying to make the listeners feel reflected with the lyrics, looking at the mirror and feeling they’re part of the hedonism of just another day. A free-spirited maverick eager to explore all kicks and an inspiration and catalyst for being in a band. We’re mad to live… desirous of everything at the same time. Even though sometimes it’s also mixed with some beats of deepness, loneliness and melancholy. The track also reflects the different social classes, the cats in the alleyways, our pals, and the loaded rats in the avenues.  The tale of passionate adventures and the search for revelation are timeless.”

Taking in headline dates in London, Leeds, Glasgow and Manchester, the band will also support Trampolene in Cardiff. The latest run of dates follows rave-received support slots with live-circuit staples such as Ash, Cast, Skinner Brothers, Carl Barat and Keir last year and directly follows a SOLD OUT national tour of Spain, which garnered much attention from national press.
